This week, I visited a reuse center to purchase supplies for the kiddo's class valentines.

The Wasteshed is a non-profit creative reuse center. It's an awesome resource! I found button makings and fancy paper to use on the valentines, and lots of studio supplies all for a reasonable price. Check them out at the link above. If you don't live in Chicago you can click here to find a similar organization in your city.

Next door was the Read Write Library. The Read Write Library is a non-profit independent library featuring self published books and periodicals written about Chicago by Chicagoans. It just had the cover article in one of the local papers which you can read here.
